"NDC's Claims Are Groundless And Untenable" – CODA

The Leadership of the Coastal Development Authority (CODA), has refuted claims made by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) saying it has not awarded any contracts to the former Member of Parliament for Jomoro, Paul Essien.

According to CODA, the claims by the NDC indicate that the former MP has misused the funds rather than its intended purpose.

In a release sighted by, the leadership of CODA said "The claims are groundless and untenable. The claim that CODA has awarded contracts to the former MP is false"

The statement also mentioned that the said contracts were rather awarded by the Ministry of Special Development Initiative of which CODA was its subsidiary.

“The Authority remains focused on initiating interventions aimed at accelerating the economic and social development of the 109 constituencies in the six regions that make up the coastal development zone,” it said.

“Selection and implementation of projects are done through an inclusive stakeholder engagement and participatory needs assessment. To that end, we entreat all stakeholders to continue to work in harmony for the benefit of their communities, constituencies, and the nation at large,” CODA concluded.

Below are copies of the release:
